    NOTES //
    Nic and Echo recorded this episode on the 17th of September, but did not get it out until September 30th, which makes some of these points valid only in the past (oops).
    Echo also hadn’t heard the news that NASA would scrub the SLS again before launch (oops again)
    Echo learned the OBAFGKM mnemonic from page 41 of a book: A History of the Universe in 21 Stars (and 3 imposters) by Giles Sparrow, which is a highly recommended read (a few typos never hurt anyone)
    Cristoforetti TED Talk: https://youtu.be/99i3T1Cw8z8
    48:23 What In the f**k was that noise I made?
    Echo’s car actually died shortly after this-- sorry I have no idea what the hell is going on

    NB: You're probably reading this part of the description because you heard someone blaspheme upon everything that is common knowledge in science and phraseology. We aren't perfect, but Echo will definitely own up to the part in the episode where he called Jupiter "the red planet." We had him write "Jupiter" on a chalkboard 50 times and think about what he'd done, and he says he's learned. We'll have to see if that pans out. Echo still stutters when he does math out loud, though; that's unaffected.
